I’M HOME!!!! 🙂 It’s so good to be back! It’s only been a week since I was last home, but it feels like I’ve been gone forever! Coming home from the hospital, I’m now in more pain than when I first arrived there. Very amused. Haha! 😉 My right arm is purple and green all over from getting so many IVs and blood draws. My latest IV infiltrated, so now I kinda have a lumpy and hard patch on my forearm. Very weird to the touch.. I’m still dealing with that new headache on top of the old one, but I received one last IV drip of magnesium before I left, and I hope it lasts! My left leg is super weak, and it’s so different being back on crutches, especially in the house.

Since my symptoms are still unresolved, here’s the plan: I see my pain dr. this coming Monday (10/1). We’ll discuss the possible removal of my spinal cord stimulator to get that MRI. Can’t wait to know what his thoughts are on that.. I start up physical therapy again (I’ve been off of it for more than a month!) on the 3rd. And, on the 5th, I have a follow-up with my neurologist. So next week will be quite busy!
And in the meantime, I’m gonna get some sleep. In my own bed. 😀 Without any phlebotomists waking me up at 6:30 in the morning. Without nurses coming in my room at 7:30. Without seeing doctors soon after that……… 😉
